Legislation Watch

Leppard Legislation Watch August 2017

Two matters need our attention this month, as they could / will have an impact on the way in which we will do business going forward. What makes it difficult in trying to analyze the impact of these pieces of legislation is that both appear to be interim measures, with no clarity or finality as to their exact application. The legislation we are referring to includes the Financial Intelligence Centre Act (which we briefly looked at in June) and the Financial Sector Regulation Bill.

Leppard Legislation Watch July 2017

Although another relatively quiet month on the legislative front, two matters that were published could have a significant impact on all of us, and we therefore need to make a note of them. The first one relates to a Discussion Paper issued by the Department of Home Affairs relating to its repositioning, and the second relates to the intention of the Ministry of Transport to introduce the Road Accident Benefit Scheme Bill.

Leppard Legislation Watch June 2017

Yet another relatively quiet month on the legislative front. One could have expected some interest for us, with the Financial Intelligence Centre Act being signed, but the commencement date has not yet been determined, so we’ll leave that for a later date.

Leppard Legislation Watch May 2017

Yet another month of little activity on legislation which may impact our industry, although some previously announced amendments came into effect on 1 April 2017. While not having a direct impact on us, those involved in the property industry or who have clients who are involved, should take note of the draft Property Practitioners Bill, which looks at repealing the Estate Agency Affairs Act (see brief note below).

Leppard Legislation Watch April 2017

Welcome to the April edition of the Leppard Legislation Watch, after complaining in last month’s newsletter about the amount of legislation that is gazetted each month, and the difficulty in trying to stay up-to-date, this month’s newsletter is relatively short.

Leppard Legislation Watch March 2017

In this edition, there is a very interesting development regarding Draft Cybercrimes and Cybersecurity Bill, it is definitely worth taking a few minutes and giving it a read.
